*** Series : The mysterious convent ***


"In 1564, from an inscription found on site, indulgences were granted by Pope Pius IV, who offered requested that prayers be said for the Christian princes, the Church and the soul of deceased João de Castro.

Between 1578 and 1580, the Chapel of Santo António was constructed, along with the erection of a wall around the convent, under the orders of Cardinal Henry.

The following year (around October) the convent was visited by King Phillip II of Spain, newly installed King of Portugal and Spain."
